On February 25, jazz singer Noah Lis took The Voice stage to give a smooth jazzy performance of Billy Paul’s hit classic, “Me and Mrs. Jones.” The 22-year-old Massachusetts native gave his soothing rendition of the classic standard and got a two-chair turn from coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton towards the very end of his set. Adam immediately went in for the kill by asking Noah for his musical influences, which he listed as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and the standards. Blake, using his rolodex of celebrity friends, noted that he was friends with Michael Bublé, who just so happens to be one of Noah’s favorite artists.
In an attempt to show his severity, Adam promised Noah that he would do his best to help the young singer’s song, which he noted as being slightly rough. On the other hand, Blake thought that Noah needed to be rougher, and added that he would be the coach to help him do just that. When it was time to make a choice, Noah decided to go with the coach he thought could help him go get to where he wants to be, and ultimately chose Blake.
